Officials: Oklahoma reaches $25 million settlement with Farmers Insurance over earthquake claims

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Following devastating earthquakes in Oklahoma, state leaders say they have finally reached a settlement agreement with Farmers Insurance.

From 2010 through May of 2016, officials say only 19 percent of earthquake insurance claims in Oklahoma were paid.

In fact, many homeowners who suffered significant earthquake damage had their claims denied because the insurance companies deemed the damage as just settling.

Now, Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter and Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready say they have reached a $25 million settlement with Farmers Insurance for the company’s handling of earthquake claims.

“Bad actors will certainly use the information for social engineering, scamming, hacking and marketing,” tweeted Alon Gal, the co-founder of an Israeli cybercrime intelligence company called Hudson Rock, who flagged the release of the Facebook data Saturday. Social engineering involves getting access to people’s confidential information by gaining their trust rather than overcoming technical barriers — for example, by impersonating a tech support person.

“I have yet to see Facebook acknowledging this absolute negligence of your data,” Gal tweeted. Gal said the compromised data also included Facebook IDs, full names, locations, some email addresses, relationship statuses and other details.
